(3) What workshops will be conducted under this initiative.

(4) What options are being considered for the longer term.

Mr Stanhope: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

1. Funding of $180,000 has been allocated to priority works that include repairs to yards at Parkwood and North Curtin, replacement of old and leaking water pipes at Hume, Illoura and North Curtin, the replacement of some fencing at Yarralumla and amelioration of erosion issues at other complexes.

An asset report for all Horse Holding complexes detailing all assets throughout the complexes which require maintenance is being updated. This report will address fences, gates, signage, yards, reticulated water systems, pest species issues, access and tree lanes, erosion issues etc.

2. (a) Signage and Service Directories - Canberra Connect will use this money to update and upgrade internal signage and directory displays across all Canberra Connect shopfronts. This will ensure the signboards are colour coded to the Q-Matic ticket system, and that signage is consistent with the Canberra Connect branding.

ICT System - The maintenance to be performed on the TAMS Corporate Geographic Directory will enable critical asset and spatial data to be stored in a modern data environment and one that is more accessible and has greater data sharing options with other databases. It will provide new opportunity for TAMS to make its asset information and data more accessible and understandable to the community via new or existing web interfaces.

Downer and Narrabundah Business Parks: A significant asbestos issue was identified at the Downer Business Park. While tenants are not at risk the removal process is costly and will be given priority. Once the removal program is finalised a program of works including carpet replacement and minor repairs at both Downer and Narrabundah will be finalised.
